Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks…   Nina: Hello Dr. Cabral, first I'd just like to thank you for everything that you do and share with this community. You have helped so many people with your knowledge and passion to help others. I'm a 36 year old female, and I have recently recovered from Candida overgrowth, blastocystis, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, a few other gut issues. I recently took a saliva based hormone test and has very low levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone. My DHEAS were on the very low end of normal and my cortisol levels were in the normal range. Could this be a case of my body still recovering/catching up? What do you recommend to rebalance my hormones? Thank you again for all that you do!   Lori: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am currently enrolled in your IHP 2 program (just certified in Level 1) - I recently was discussing one of your podcasts with a ND re: Covid & the gut, & she mentioned she is seeing alot of Pancreatitis in patients after Covid also. Wondering if this is something you have encountered, & if you can speak on this topic in one of your podcasts. Please advise ~ Sincerely, Lori    Kathrin: Dear Dr.Cabral I have Vitilligo and there is no cure . It really depress me . Do you have any suggestions .I try to be Gluten , no Dairy ,Eggs and low carb low fat . But nothing help .Only direct Sun exposure in the Summer. I feel helpless. Thanks for your time   Jillian: Hi Dr. Cabral, This may seem random but, I'm wondering if you have any knowledge on sandbox health safety for children. I've been debating on getting one for my toddler and have heard some people mention they can be unsanitary and harbor parasites. We would keep it covered when not in use. Also I've heard some people use diatomaceous earth but have also heard it could be harmful? What are your thoughts?   Barbie: Hello. I am in desperate need for Dr. Cabral to help me! He seems so knowledgeable and so nice. I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get better and figure out what the “cause” is to my health issues and NOBODY, not even the naturopaths I have seen can find it. My prayer to God is to PLEASE, can I somehow talk to Dr. Cabral? Can he PLEASE help me?   Summer: Hey Doc! I have gut disbiosis, possibly SIBO, and leaky gut, have gotten rid of HPylori, and now mid CBO protocol. I have been doing coffee enemas on and off for a few years with a clean organic coffee. Larry I try to do a round once a week for the extra liver support. I always feel great after, but more often than not, a few hours to half a day later, I'll experience terrible bloating. It feels like a huge gas bubble or something that won't move. I usually end up doing another enema to move it through. I usually do two rounds of about 6-8 cups distilled water then about 4 cups of coffee. I started using less water thinking I was just using too much and not being able to move it all back out, but it's still causing problems most times. Any idea what might be causing the bloating and discomfort?

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:    Maria: Hi and thank you so much for everything you do and all your time. My question is this. Back in October of 2020 I had my gallbladder removed. Prior to having my gallbladder removed I had amazing bowel movements sorry for the tmi. I also never had a uti. I'm 46 by the way. After I had my gallbladder removed I started to experience that my bowel movements were starting to slow down. Then I had my first UTI in December of 2020. Then I started to develop adult acne little white pimples all over my face my neck my scalp even my ears. Then my bowel movement started to slow down even more. And I got another UTI in April of 2021. My bowel movements continue to slow down. I try to eat ery healthy I eat healthier than most people. And am very intentional with my health. And I try to do all the right things and take all the right supplements. But I am consistently seeing that my constipation has gotten worse. And my acne has gotten worse. And I have gotten another UTI recently in the month of february. Most recently I also noticed that I get full faster and I fell like I'm so stuffed I also have more gas and burping. What would you recommend.   Rebekah: Hello Dr. Cabral. I am 39 years old and over the past year I have been having a cluster of symptoms. GERD, headache, vertigo, off balance, fatigue, muscle spasms, numbness and tingling in my hands, feet, tongue, lips. I had an MRI that showed non-specific white matter changes and was referred to a neurologist. An EMG was done but I have not gotten results. I am not a fan of the neurologist I was referred to and am looking for a more holistic approach to my symptoms. I suspected I was having mold toxicity. We have moved out of our home and into a brand new house but my symptoms have not gone away. I changed my diet by eliminating dairy, gluten and going organic.I did have vitamin b12 checked and it was normal. I am currently on your CBO protocol. Any advice on things I should be testing for or foods to eliminate? This is very frustrating and I wish I could feel normal again and get to the bottom of this. I am so glad I found your podcast and thank you for all that you do.   Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, First I quickly want to say that I love your podcast and wish I discovered it sooner. Trying to catch up with all older episodes since I learn so much from you. Thank you for all you do. My question is about thyroid. I recently found out I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto. I'm against taking hormones. How can I rebalance my thyroid naturally? I have a naturopathic doctor who mentioned to me LDN (low dose naltrexone) that for some people can reverse autoimmune conditions. Any thoughts on LDN? Is it worth trying or would you recommend other, more natural approach? (I'm also dealing with GI issues I'm addressing and I read that LDN may also be helpful to my gut issues)   Gordon: Hello Dr Cabral, my issue is what seems to be a chronic problem with lightheadedness/dizziness. Has been going on for a year plus, happens every day now, sometimes several times a day. I've had MRI's, thorough eye exams (thought to be related to ocular migraines) and ear exams - all testing returned within “normal” limits. I am in my early 70's, take no medications, exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet. Typically have a low heart rate and low blood pressure. Any ideas as to cause, next steps? Any help is appreciated. Thanks for all you do!   Adam: Dr. Cabral, Many thanks for all that you do. You have truly been a blessing! My questions are related to anti-aging and Equilife's new Longevity Line, which I am very excited about! What is your current anti-aging supplement protocol? Do you take cell boost and inflamma soothe? If so what dosage? Are there any other anti-aging supplements that you use outside of equilife? On episode 1507 you mention that you have been taking nicotinamide riboside (NR) for three years but it was not included in cell boost. Instead nicotinamide mononucleutide (NMN) was included. Do you prefer NMN over NR?

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks…   Jennifer: Hi Dr. Cabral! I got "the virus" in March 2021 and again in January 2022. I am a healthy 44 woman. For some reason each time the virus affected my heart rate. It gives me the feeling like my heart is beating very fast and makes me feel anxious or gives me a feeling like I drank too much coffee (when I only drink 1 cup a day). Last year I had my heart checked and everything was normal. It went away after I received the v last year but I really don't want to get a b shot this year. Any other ways to stop my heart from beating so fast? My vitamin A and C levels are low, B levels are high. Blood pressure is sometimes low but usually around 100 over 70. Thank you for your help. I love listening to your podcasts.   Allen: Hello Dr. Cabral, I have done the HTMA lab in the past. I did have some aluminum levels and vitamin deficiencies  in my hair samples. I have since taken supplements to fix those vitamin deficiencies.  I recognize now that I should have done a heavy metals detox right away, however I was in the middle of trying to conceive and did not wish to interrupt that and I know it's not safe to do while trying to conceive. So I never completed a heavy metals detox. I eat a balanced diet, I'm a healthy weight,  I complete a few liver detoxes each year, I workout 4-5 days a week with a mix of sauna, weights, and cardio, I use the sauna sometimes as well. I was wondering, aren't I naturally detoxing heavy metals and other toxins from my body very regularly while sweating and eating foods that support the natural detox process? I know that the supplements in the heavy metal detox assist with the detoxification process, but I'm wondering how much I am naturally able to detox on my own simply by living a healthy lifestyle. I know the research supports that the supplements that come with the heavy metal detox work. Are there other ways to remove heavy metal toxins? Thank you for answering my questions!   Kelly: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for your podcast and book. You are a true blessing to people like myself seeking optimum wellness and disease prevention! I am a relatively healthy 35 year old female with a have a strange question- My husband and I had Cin October. Prior to our infection with C, I had suffered for about three years with unexplained shortness of breath. I tried endlessly to get to the bottom of what was causing this sudden onset shortness of breath. I did diaphragm exercises, I took iron supplements, I increase my aerobic exercise, I tried adaptogens and stress relieving herbs like lavender, I did counseling and meditation… The shortness of breath came out of the blue in my early 30s and magically disappeared when I fully recovered from C (which took about two week). The only explanation I have is that while I had C I would inhale steam with essential oils like Teatree oil and grapefruit seed extract and another germ fighting blend. I'm curious about your thoughts on whether my long term shortness of breath could have been attributed to some bacteria or fungus in my lungs that was inadvertently wiped out as I treated my C symptoms with gentle steam inhalation with essential oils. I am baffled at how this chronic condition could vanish!   Oren: Hi, I'm a 20 years old female. I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't chubby. I'm not immensely overweight, I weigh about 70kg at 1.71m. I've done strict keto for months, combined with omad/intermittent fasting a few times a week, and I also train BJJ 4 times a week. Now starting carnivore. I eat about 1300-1700 calories a day, depending on my hunger. My body won't respond to any of that except for helping with bloating. Measurements and compositions stayed the same for a year of trying these things and I don't really know what to do anymore. I took the body ype quite, and my answers were almost dispersed equally between the different body types, with a small favor for the Vatta and Pitta types, except for the fact that I gain weight easily and can't seem to lose it from my thighs and belly no matter what I do. I'm kinda desperate so I'd love some help, thank you :)   Anonymous: Hi dr. Cabral! Hope you are doing well and hope you can help point me in the direction TO get well :)! I experience chronic runny nose upon waking in the morning or after laying down for a long period of time. It stops running a couple hours after being awake and sometimes comes back in the evening. I also have extreme sugar (mainly chocolate) cravings, nocturia, mood swings, acne (mainly around jaw/chin) and foul gas (no bloating). My candida metabolic vitamins test showed no microbial overgrowth, below the mean for all neurotransmitter metabolites and slightly elevated orotic acid. If I have no bacterial overgrowth where is the gas coming from? And why won't my nose stop running (lol)! Do I need to run additional FM labs to figure this out? Thank you in advance for all your advice & recommendations!!!   Summer: Hey Doc! On day 14 of a 21 day detox and day 14 of CBO as well. 32 year old female hypothyroidism and gut disbiosis confirmed with testing.I have actually lost some stubborn lbs that I haven't been able to budge in years so grateful for that! I'm concerned that it's because I'm starving… been eating clean for 5-6 years. I can't tolerate any of the plant proteins so have had to add salmon and a little wild game into my lunches. I used to survive on mainly fats especially nuts and eggs. I'm really struggling to get over 1,000 calories and hit my macros. Really missing my hearty breakfast. Worried about causing further damage to my thyroid and adrenals. I seem to now be intolerant of my normal exercise as well. Exercise in the morning is out of the question. My stomach is ALWAYS gurgling (not hunger pains) just noisy. Terrible gas and bloating for the last 9 days. I think that may be due to all the extra veggies I've added. I cook everything to help digestion, I use Canadian bitters before meals, chewing everything to a liquid, gut massage, and ginger and peppermint teas. Is my digestion actually getting worse? Should I just power through?That's what I'm doing, but would like to hear your thoughts even if it's 7 weeks out! Support group had some suggestions but not satisfactory. thx!

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!   Check out today's questions:    Shirleyta: I have suffered for BMS for 1.5 years.. what should I do, Doctor? What kind of specific Doctor do I need . Thank you for your kind attention.   Fiona: Scans show fatty liver but I don't consume any alcohol, my diet is organic and plant-based with no processed foods. How is this possible?   Anonymous: Hi there! Firstly, thank you for all the knowledge and wisdom you share! I have been working on healing my gut for about 3 months now. I have noticed some changes like more energy, less cravings, better sleep. However, I am still really struggling with my skin. My skin periodically gets this sort of rash that looks like sebaceous filaments and water retention. I know sebaceous filaments are natural but they are not always this prominent. Are there foods that cause this? Also, I have noticed that i have a sensitivity to lectins and a lot of the protein sources on the Dr. Cabral detox are a bit high in lectins(beans, legumes, chia seeds). I listened to your podcast on eliminating them for a while if one is sensitive and then reintroducing them later on. How can I modify the detox so that I still get enough protein while also avoiding lectins? Thank you so much in advance!   Moriah: I was just listening to your podcast and you said something word for word what I said to myself a year ago… “I won't take antibiotics unless I'm dying” Last year, antibiotics caused me to catch a c diff infection and I've never been so sick, the antibiotics they gave me to cure the c diff, didn't even work and I got a second infection, I literally felt like I could have died. A local naturopath finally helped me heal my gut and repair my issues. Just wanted to say thank you for speaking out about the danger of unnecessary use of antibiotics   Lisa: Is it ok to use cbd oil while pregnant? I have been using cbd oil for 2-3 years to help me sleep at night and I can't sleep well without it. Thoughts on taking it during pregnancy ?   Anonymous: Hi. I have been listening to your podcast for a while and it has really been helping a lot with my health issues. In numerous podcast episodes, you have mentioned that keto and long intermittent fasting isn't good for female hormones. I have extreme insulin resistance and I have had it for years. I have tried keto with vegetables for about 3 weeks now along with intermittent fasting of 16 hours in order to try to reduce my insulin resistance, hair loss at temples, and skin rash. However, i seem to be gaining more weight around the belly even though I have not been consuming any carbs other than low glycemic vegetables. What could be causing this? I thought that belly fat especially love handles were caused by high insulin? Also, what method would you suggest for healing extreme insulin resistance for a female?

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Afaf: Greetings, Could you kindly answer an inquiry for my dad who was diagnosed with a prostate cancer? He is 78 years old, 5'10 and weighs 150 lbs. The conclusion of the biopsy shows: - Right prostatic biopsy: adenocarcinoma prostatic grade 4 of ISUP, Score of Gleason at 8 (4+4), infiltrating 80% of the examined sample - Left prostatic biopsy: foyer of 2mm of an adenocarcinoma prostatic grade 4 of ISUP, Score of Gleason at 8 (4+4) The test results from the CT scan showed no other organ is damaged along with his bones. His doctor advised to start radio therapy and hormone-therapy. My inquiry is related to the Prostate Support supplementation as I would like to know if it is compatible with the treatment he is about to start. Can he take the supplements while he is ongoing treatment? Otherwise, should these supplements be taken prior to the start of treatment or after? When and what is the best timeframe to take these? Many thanks for your precious advice. Siomara: Hi Dr. Cabral I am a 47 year old female. I've had sleeping issues for years now. I use to take the generic brand of ambien and that didn't make my sleeping issue any better. Every night when I put my head on my pillow the back of my head and neck hurts to the point where I can't sleep. My head feels restless, if that even makes sense. I saw a neurologist and she said I have occipital neuralgia and she poked me with a needle to block the nerve on the back of my head, It didn't work for me. I also went to a pain management doctor and he told me it was stress and prescribed noretriptilyne to relax me at night, that didn't work either. I stopped taking every medication given to me for this problem and I just bare the pain. I've also purchased every pillow imaginable for the head and neck and nothing seems to work. I've changed my lifestyle by eating healthy for the past two years. I am gluten free and eat clean. I've eliminated processed foods and sugar from my diet. I was thinking of going to a chiropractor. Please let me know what you think. I am always so tired because I do not get any sleep. Thanks in advance for your help! Amy: Hello Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all that you do. My husband has had consistently low HDL levels (often in the low 30 mg/dl) despite being of normal weight and without other known risk factors. His father (deceased from a heart attack) and his sister have also both had consistently low HDL (although both were/are overweight). The doctor would advise him to exercise more, which is ironic since my husband runs quite a bit. Having said that my questions are : In an otherwise healthy individual is low HDL something to be concerned about? If it is something of concern, other than increasing exercise might there be some natural ways of raising HDL levels despite a possible genetic connection? Thank you for all you do.  Summer: Hi doc! Question regarding EBV. I'm 32 & had mono around age 15. My health tanked after that until about 5 years ago. My white blood cell count, absolute neutrophils, & absolute monocytes are all low. EBV early antigen D AB (IGG) is 29.4 u/mL, EBV viral capsid AG (VCA) AB (IGG) is 297 U/mL, & EBV nuclear AG (EBNA) AB (IGG) is 191 U/mL. I'm told all the EBV levels are high & that these labs point to chronic active EBV. I've been working diligently for at least 5 years on my health. I've overcome PCOS, PMD, endometriosis, H Pylori, depression, arthritis, migraines, exercise intolerance, regained energy & drive, but still having gut & thyroid issues. I've been overdosed on Bioidentical T3 for a number of years & have recently weaned off & my thyroid has improved dramatically. By the time you answer this I'll be about half done with the CBO protocol. I guess I'm wondering how do I know that the EBV is causing my residual health issues? Should I have addressed the EBV first instead of the gut? I've already been doing most of the things listed in ep. 760 so curious why my levels would still show a problem with EBV. I've worked so hard & feel like I just can't quite get all the way there. I'm struggling with the right order to attack these remaining problems. Thanks so much! Chelsea: Hi Dr. Cabral - question about coffee enemas. Does caffeine get absorbed into the bloodstream when doing a coffee enema? Or can they be done later in the day without caffeine affecting sleep? Isabella: Where does exercise fit in when you're under extreme mental & emotional stress and not getting enough sleep (4-6 hrs) and still have to manage a household with kids and a spouse? I try to eat well, at least 5-7 cups of veggies per day, lean proteins, supplement with Daily Foundation Protocol 2 plus Zinc. I usually do HIIT classes but worry that it may just be adding more stress to my current situation.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what could be the reason I can only handle 1 drop of biocidin? I've been taking biocidin for 7 months. I can take other supplements at full dose daily like NAC 600mg, ALA 600mg and Liposomal Glutathione 500mg. I have tested positive for mold toxicity and h pylori. What can I do to be able to take higher dosages ?   Kelsey: Hi! Looking to build a house. How do you feel about living near farming? There are corn crops on the edge of the property we are looking at. Worried about potential harmful effects from them spraying with chemicals. Thoughts? Thank you   Gina: Hi Dr Cabral! Thank you so much for all of the helpful information you share, you've been a huge help with a lot of things I've been struggling with. My question is ; Since I was young (elementary school) I've dealt with a fast heart rate/palpitations/lightheadedness intermittently that have become more frequent lately. I'm 33 otherwise healthy, eat clean, no meds, no alcohol, very health conscious. Cardiologist "diagnosed" a "short pr interval" based off EKG that he says may *or may not* suggest I have an extra accessory passageway. Anyway, the episodes are hard to determine triggers for; they seem to be more likely to happen during my cycle and during ovulation. Also highly likely during season changes. Never been on birth control, gave birth 3 years ago and I'd say they have become more frequent since then. Also had a fibroadenoma prior to pregnancy that disappeared and never came back after pregnancy. Not sure if that indicates I'm no longer estrogen dominant? Did the hair test recently and found my sodium and potassium both low, potassium a lot higher than sodium, calcium a lot higher than magnesium so am going to work on that. I take vitamin D3, multi, vitamin C and zinc as well. Any other direction you can help point me in would be appreciated!! Thank you very much!     Penny: I know to consult my physician but… I'm 370 pounds & I I do have Hypothyroid & taking meds for it but I'd really like to start Fatlossity & wanted to know if I could get started & for how long can one stay one it. Thank you for any help or advice with this. Thank you.   Aisha: Hi, hope you're having a great day. My daughter is turning 4 soon and she has about 8 grey hairs on the top of her head. I've read this might be a copper deficiency issue. What should I be looking into? Some background: She tends to struggle with mild eczema and can sometimes get constipated. Also, slightly unrelated to the hair but who knows, her belly is slightly big and can get bloated after certain meals. Sorry to throw so much at you at once. Truly appreciate your help and guidance.   Alyssa: Hi Dr Cabral! I have a question about HRV. I got an Apple Watch for my 37th birthday. I noticed my HRV is very low. It averages 30's but it sometimes as low as 15. I have pretty well controlled RA and hashimotos.

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Kayla: Hi, I am working with an integrative practitioner right now. I have had a sharp pain in my lower left stomach, which she said it was a swollen lymph node. My candida antibodies came back extremely high, so I am currently taking antifungal herbs, as well as a probiotic and it my pain and symptoms seem to be getting worse. Do you think there are other underlying problems contributing to this pain? Or why do you think there is such a sharp pain in the lower left abdomen? Thank you so much!   Jenny: Hi Dr. Cabral - I am a long-time, dedicated podcast listener and am so appreciative of the information and insights you share. I am excited to now be a Ayubowan Member and look forward to receiving on going lab tests and coaching calls along with it. I follow the foundational protocol level 2 daily and also take your immune support products. My question has to do with the new longevity line of products that I am also excited to try. Because some of them include some of the supplements I'm already taking daily, how can I determine whether I should continue with my current supplements in addition to the longevity products? I have been reluctant to order the ones I'm most interested in trying because I am unsure. Much thanks to you and your amazing team!   Hans: how to rid the body of a fatty liver   Mally: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for all you do, your podcasts and Equilife products have been SUCH a blessing for me and my family! I have ran a stool & organic acids test test through my local functional doctor, and have completed a 6 month bacteria overgrowth protocol through him. I recently tested for incredibly high levels of Ochratoxin A and started on your mold protocol. (His protocol called from some intense binders, so I did not feel comfortable taking those while my body is already herxing.) I appreciate how your mold protocol has less side effects. My question is, is your protocol able to address mold that has colonized in the sinuses and/or organs? My chronic sinusitis started when I was a kid and I am wondering what the proper expectation should be are far as recovery time. I have seen decent amounts of biofilm in my stool for about 6 months now. Also, is there any bloodwork I should be monitoring while I am detoxing so heavily?   Crystal: Hi Dr. Cabral! Because of my PCOS, I now have chronic dry eye syndrome. I have listened to all of your podcasts on dry eye that I could find and nothing seems to help. The only thing that has seemed to help the constant burning are Restasis eye drops that my eye doctor prescribed me. The dry eye suddenly started in Feb. 2020 out of nowhere and ever since, my eyes are really red and a large, visible, red vein has formed in my right eye. My eye doctor told me it will never go away, but I just don't want to believe that. My eyes have always been my best feature and I hate having red eyes all of the time and this giant red vein. What can I do to stop my dry eye and can I ever get rid of the red vein? Sorry my question is so long, but I so appreciate you taking your time out to answer my question and I value your work and advice so much. Thank you Dr. Cabral, you are my biggest inspiration!   Michael: Hi Dr Cabral what would cause someone to burp omega 3 capsules? I've tried many functional medicine brands but I keep burping them. I have low stomach acid, tested positive for h pylori and I probably have sibo as well.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Summer: Hi doc! Thank you so much for the time and effort that you put in to serving your fellow man. I've learned so much from you and share your podcast every chance I get! Long story short, I learned about natural health a little too late in life. After years of imbalance, infertility, dis-ease, and irreversible surgery, my husband and I are hoping to adopt an infant and I've recently learned that it is not our decision whether or not the child is fully vaccinated according to the standard vac schedule. It is the state's decision until the child is 6 months old when the paperwork has all gone through. So basically I will be forced to take the baby to every ‘well child' appointment and hand them over to a well meaning, but ignorant hospital employee for all of the neurotoxins mandated by the gov. After learning this I initially decided that I can't be a party to that. I've wrestled with this for months and decided that any poor child in the system would at least be better off with us where we can try to mitigate the damage immediately and give them a healthy full life to the best of our ability. So I'm wondering what is the best way to physically prepare the baby for each visit and how to detox from these unnecessary tox injections? Thanks again! Summer   Summer: Hi Doc! In the case of adoption, since the majority of infants in the system are born addicted to drugs and alcohol, and within hours are bombarded with vacs and antibiotics, what is the best approach to help their poor little bodies find balance and healing for the first time in their young life? Also, if the birth mother has some kind of infection like an STI, would you recommend allowing the use of antibiotics especially in the eyes or can some kind of a modified natural anti-v protocol be used if all parties are in agreement? Thanks! Summer   Even: Is H pylori bad for you if left untreated? I don't have any symptoms but tested for it on stool test so I don't want to spend all this money to treat if it doesn't matter. Thank you!   Kenzie: Hi dr Cabral! I have Gilbert's syndrome and typically have no symptoms from it. I am a wine sales rep and do love wine so sometimes my job requires to drink a little. I try to limit it but when I do drink I am pretty hungover. How do I support my liver when I do? I've heard milk thistle is bad for Gilbert's   Amy: Thank you for all of work & sharing this information Dr Cabral! My son is 7.5 years old and has suffered from allergy induced asthma for the last 6 years. We thought he was doing much better, then last October he was hospitalized for 3 days due to an asthma attack. Less than 3 months later he ended up with pneumonia and not to mention all the viruses he's had between. Of course the allergist wants him on Flovent 2 times a day, Albuterol, allergy shots & daily Zyrtec but this just doesn't feel right. We've done a food sensitivity and removed those items including dairy & gluten. We met with a holistic nutritionists that did a stool test & learned he has gut dysbosis & a presence of H . Ployri. He is currently on a supplement regimen to help those issues but still doesn't seem to be improving. We have an air doctor, water filter, only use natural cleaning products & hygiene products. We eat organic & only local grass fed meat. We have removed all the toxic burdens that we know of and are at a loss of how to help him heal. I appreciate any feedback for next steps. Thank you!   Greg: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love fruit and sometimes I enjoy the crunchiness and convenience of freeze dried fruit. No additives, fruit is the only ingredient. What are your thoughts? How does it compare it to frozen or fresh   Anonymous: I want to first off thank you for all that you do! Providing valuable information for free is very altruistic and appreciated by all of your listeners. I have a few quick questions: -Do you have any recommendations for seasonal allergy support for dogs? My dog gets hot spots for a cluster of weeks 1-3 times a year and I want to be able to help support his gut health/suspected histamine response during those times. -What are your thoughts on the ayurvedic herb, Neem? I am a kapha-pitta (pretty even split) and it was recommended to me by a practitioner and has helped me greatly especially when pitta is aggravated. I was just curious as to your thoughts on it. -What are your thoughts on vegan meat alternatives (for example, Sweet Earth Benevolent Bacon)? Are there any good brands you know of that you would recommend for eating occasionally instead of having the actual processed meat?

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Bryan: Hi Dr Cabral. Just want to start by thanking you for everything you do for me and so many people. You (and Julia) have helped me uncover a couple of root causes to some of my dis-eases and I'm feeling much better overall. I travel quite a bit for work, sometimes have to stay in hotels, and just find myself in situations where I can't really cook and it might take a lot of effort to find something healthy. I always take my DNS powder and shaker bottle with me everywhere for the morning and sometimes afternoon shake. Do you have any recommendations for eating clean lunches and dinners while on the road or somewhere where it's difficult to cook? Thank you so much.   Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, I recently ran the heavy metals and minerals test and it was recommended that I start on a multi vitamin for some subtle mineral deficiencies. I am using the equilife multi and have noticed my urine taking on a neon yellow color. I am well hydrated, and my urine very rarely goes past a very pale yellow, mostly clear. Is this a sign that there are vitamins that are not being absorbed or possibly that I am getting too much of certain vitamins and simply offloading the excess? Thanks for all you do!   Lesley: Hi Last year I was admitted to hospital with Covid pneumonitis and had oxygen for 12 days. I was hypoxic on admission but not noticeably breathless(silent hypoxia). I have been on a good nutrition plan since hospital discharge and taking zinc, vit c and vit d. I have just had a 12 week follow up X-ray which shows resolving Covid pneumonitis. I feel quite well but worried about the recovery of my lungs. My blood saturation is good 99%. Please can you give me any advice on what I can do to improve my lung recovery. Many thanks   Diana: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for everything you do and your daily podcasts! I have a question about digestive enzymes. Is there such a thing as being allergic to digestive enzymes? My son has Alopecia Areata, never had any stomach issues like bloating and vomiting, but he does when he takes digestive enzymes, he has tried 3 different and they all had the following enzymes in comment: Protease, amylase, lipase. Any idea of what could be the reason for bloating and vomiting after taking digestive enzymes? It also triggered a flareup. I want to do the CBO protocol, but I am afraid of him losing more hair because of the biofilm distributor and die off symptoms. He is 15 years old and it's been very hard.   Michelle: I have a family member who was just diagnosed with mitochondrial disease? Can you recommend an ayurvedic/ functional medicine approach?Labs or tests that she should have run? Any insights would be appreciated--love your podcast!   Lorena: We all know how estrogen dominance and weight gain in the mid section are related. But this is interesting because there have been studies (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5460681/) that show how the risk of diabetes was reduced by 62% in women currently using HRT (hormone replacement therapy with estradiol included) compared to women who had never had HRT. One resource suggested that loss of estradiol, the primary human estrogen, from either natural or surgical menopause causes an abrupt reduction in metabolic rate, a tendency to increased fat around the middle, increased problems with cholesterol and triglycerides, and increased progression to metabolic syndrome. So which one is it? Does it cause weight gain or not? I'm confused now and I only trust your advice haha… Thank you for tuning into this weekend's Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right! - - - Show Notes & Resources:  http://StephenCabral.com/2263 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -  Dr. Cabral's Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Sleep & Hormones Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Bob: Hi Dr. Cabral - I have a fun hypothetical for you. What do you think the health of America would look like 1, 5, and 10 years down the road if you could snap your fingers and eliminate Glyphosate and replace the highly inflammatory oils most Americans cook with and consume with healthy oils? Say everyone carried on with their same diet and lifestyle, just those two things instantly changed. Love the podcast - keep up the good work!   Jen: Hi Dr. Cabral! recently did a genetic test and found I have genotype GSTP1 rs1695(A;G). This has been associated with possible harmful effects of supplemental vitamin E. I take the Daily Nutritional Support powder daily and I'm wondering if I should have a concern with the vitamin E in that formula? Should vitamin E supplementation be avoided completely? Thank you for your insight and all you do!   Anette: Hi Dr. Cabral. First of all, Thanks for all that you do! And the information you share with us. I don't want to make this long and take up your time, so here are my two questions. My first question, how do I reduce inflammation in my body which is probably the cause of my seasonal allergies? Is adrenal fatigue a cause of inflammation? I did the OAT and metals test, results did not show any major concerns. My second question, I'm experiencing dry cough and mucus after the virus. It's been about 3 weeks now. What can I do to get rid of these symptoms?   Isabella: Where does exercise fit in when you're under extreme mental & emotional stress and not getting enough sleep (4-6 hrs) and still have to manage a household with kids and a spouse? I try to eat well, at least 5-7 cups of veggies per day, lean proteins, supplement with Daily Foundation Protocol 2 plus Zinc. I usually do HIIT classes but worry that it may just be adding more stress to my current situation.   Diane: Hi Dr. Cabral and thank you for all you do in your unending efforts in getting us all on track to total wellness. I recently read of a bath ‘recipe' of 2 cups of Epsom salts, 1 box of baking soda, and one bottle of peroxide in the bath water to help aid in restoring the body's PH Balance. I've watched your Podcasts on epson salt baths along with optional essential oils such as lavender, have read the Rain Barrel Effect, an excellent book, but had wondered your opinion on if this combination has any wellness benefit or if I'm just wasting products. .

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Tennea: Hi Dr Cabral, I'm currently doing your IHP training. I wanted to know if you have any advice on the condition called Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) I had an accident 4 years ago leaving me “permanently disabled” in my left arm, hand, and shoulder after breaking my elbow (terrible triad). And I ended up with this nerve chronic pain CRPS. I also developed a anaphylactic reaction to seafood last year (I LOVE seafood), I believe it's related to the CRPS. I would be eternally great full for your advice or thoughts on this. Warm regards Teena Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I'm hoping you could talk about the “extra” ingredients in supplements.. like different fillers, additives, preservatives..? Which ones should we be careful about, which different names do they use for the same crappy substance, for example, citric acid is in lots of them, also lactic acid, etc. What kind of a capsule (vegan) should it be and so on? Would love to buy extra clean supplements but sometimes it's really difficult to get them, especially with the crazy prices.. Thank you! Happy healing, everyone!   Rachel: Body odour. I sometimes find that I have very very strong body odour in my armpits. It's not the "normal" BO smell. It is pungent but more like a strong gasoline smell. When it happens it's almost as if I can't wash it off. Showering and washing my armpits helps lessen it, but the smell is still there. Any idea what the cause could be or how to rectify it? Thank you! Debra: I have mast cell disease,, hereditary alpha tryptaemia syndrome, and Intracranaian increased hypertension which causes debilitating migraines. I have done your detox and despite the debilitating migraines getting worse I stuck it out. I did the hair migraine erase test and I had to stop all supplements recommended for now. I was reacting to everything. Especially the shakes high in vitamin A. Do you have experience in IIH aka pseudo tumor? Would love to work together further. I'm a huge fan and desperate to heal.thanks, Debra Nick: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have two questions for you — one, i recently had a snowboarding accident where i hit my head and got a CT scan and MRI which showed a Cavernoma in the back upper outer edge of my head. Do you have any natural remedies advice for controlling / improving it? i've had no symptoms and it was found incidentally. (i'm 25 years old) my second question is — they told me i will need to monitor it probably 1-2 times a year with contrast and no contrast MRI. Should i be concerned with the gadolinium metal that's used to contrast the MRI? if so, would you have any alternative suggestions (i.e. recommending no contrast) or any detox solutions you'd recommend if you think it's necessary? thank you! Karen: Hi Dr. Cabral - I recently found your practice and I love what you do. My question is - my son joined the navy and had extensive blood work done. He discovered that he has a high percentage of sickle cell trait. He was 1% from the navy's limit. Are there health issues associated with a higher percentage of this trait? Thank you so much!

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Chelsea: Hi Dr. Cabral! Two quick questions - I'm a healthy and active 30yo female and have a high running body temperature. My friends and my partner often comments that my skin is always hot to the touch almost like I have a fever but it's my baseline, especially in the evening and overnight. I sweat easily and am a true pitta. Do you know why I might run so hot? I have stripped back most inflammatory foods after doing my lab testing and am in good health overall, and don't have hot flashes or anything I'm just curious why I'm warmer than anyone I know! Second - my Oura ring shows me that I get almost all of my REM sleep between 6am -8am. Is this normal? This means any time I have to get up early I miss out on most of my rem, when when I try to go to bed earlier. I'd estimate most nights I'm fully asleep before 11 and always practice good sleep hygiene to maximise my deep and rem cycles. Is this normal/is there anything I can do to get more rem before 6am? Thank you! Chelsea   Jill: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you 100 times over for changing my life. Question I go to bed around 11 but around 2-3 am I start itching uncontrollably until I wake up. All over really but then specifically in one spot on the inside of my thigh. It keeps me up all night. I have read It's because of body temperature change, moisture etc I also have severe dry mouth upon waking? Is this simply dehydration? . I have an air purifier in my room and i drink water? Does this mean i need more? I try to slow down water before bed to avoid waking up to urinate. What am i missing or what Would you suggest? What exactly is going on? Thank you again, Jill   Anonymous: Hi! I am such a huge fan of the podcast! It has truly taught me a lot. I have been learning a lot about ayurveda lately, but something that still confuses me is the ayurvedic season. In my country, we only have only rainy and sunny seasons, not the 4 seasons. I was wondering how that translates ayurvedically to the dosha seasons. I would like to tailor my diet to the season but I'm a bit unclear on how to do that. Also, my birth constitution is predominantly vata(50%) and the rest is pitta and kapha respectively. I understand that I need more grounding carbs, and wholesome oils and fats in my diet. Especially because I tend to have dry skin and dull low density hair. However, whenever I increase them, I gain a lot of weight especially in my face and belly. I assume it's insulin issues. I have tried detoxing and fasting but I still have a lot of food cravings. And it's not for refined carbs, it's for healthy foods like sweet potatoes and also fats like avocados . When I finish a meal, I feel physically full but mentally unsatisfied. I can't seem to stop eating even though I know that I've had enough. The feeling is so strong. I also can't seem to stop thinking about food even when I'm not eating. It's overwhelming. I would love your insight on this. Thank you for all you do!   Michelle: Hi Dr. Cabral. I hope this will be an interesting one for you to answer. Couple years ago before I knew what a proper functional medicine gut/stool test was I did one that gave me a list of foods to avoid and superfoods to maximize based on my microbiome. Avoid list foods were bell peppers, paprika, tomato and the reason given was because my gut had pepper and paprika mild mottle virus and tomato mosaic virus. Another food on the avoid list was coffee and the reason given was because the catechols in coffee can be unfavorable to my gut. What are coffee catechols? Is any of this real? Can the viruses be eradicated? I don't drink coffee but I want to try a coffee enema so will I be compromising my gut as the test suggests? Thanks for the guidance!   Marleena: Hi! Thank you so much for what you do! I'm a Vata 32 years old currently working through adrenal fatigue with your team. I've been trying to maximise my self-care so I started implementing hot Epsom salt baths 2x a week before dinner. My readiness in the Oura ring is not as great the morning after the days I do the bath as it looks like my heart rate is a little higher throughout the night. Any idea why these baths might be affecting me like that? I only stay for 10 min.   Brenda: Hi & thank you Dr Cabral for all your knowledge. What are your recommendations/experience with transdermal cream vs by mouth form. An Ayurvedic practitioner recommended chandika vit d transdermal cream instead of using a by mouth form of drops or supplements to prevent less liver overload . Appreciate your advice regarding this.

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks…   Justin: Hi Dr. Cabral, Does cold weather make you sick? My mother is paranoid about her body being cold even when she is inside, and being out in the cold weather she is even more paranoid. She is convinced cold weather will make her sick. I've looked this up and could not find anything on it. Thanks   Fay: I'm curious… Dr. Cabral you cured yourself of all your diseases. Drs tell me mine is not reversible. I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).. my pancreas is not producing the enzymes I need to digest my fats, proteins and carbs. I have done your labs and your protocols. However, I am going to have this continued bacterial overgrowth because of the EPI. I am taking XXXX enzymes with all meals. My pancreas is fine, not enlarged. My liver is fine..I still have my gallbladder. I have no surgeries or diseases. I've done all the bloodwork, endoscopy  etc. I am fine except for the EPI. My Dr said I was drinking more alcohol than I should have on a daily basis. It's been a few years now that I only have few drinks on weekends. I know I should have none.. I've tried that with no change. My question is can I heal my pancreas so that it makes the enzymes I need? Otherwise there's no point in doing anything more to get rid of the excess bacteria I have.. it'll just keep coming back. I suffer with bloating and burping. XXXX enzymes helps but I really don't want to take these pills the rest of my life if I don't have to. Thanks for any insight with this.   Kenny: Hi Dr. Cabral, a friend sent me an article saying that there's health risks to taking melatonin. I take it at least 5 nights a week and I know in the past you've spoken very highly on melatonin and it's safety. Here is a link to the article. It's CNN, so I am very skeptical already. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Thx! https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/01/health/melatonin-overuse-wellness/index.html   Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and have learned so much from it! I've had candida overgrowth and other gut issues that I have been working on. I've done a couple of protocols for candida and parasites in the past (not yours) but still experience lot's of bloating. I take probiotics daily. One of the probiotics I take has S.boulardi in it. I know it's a good yeast, but it still yeast. My question: can Saccharomyces boulardii make candida worse? I also had to take antibiotic recently (Xifaxan), so I want to bring good bacteria to my gut now. Will I benefit from s.boulardi, or can it make my candida worse? (I just purchased Complete Candida, Matabolic and Vitamins test from you and will retest for candida to see where I stand now, I'm curious about the "good fungi" and candida interaction)   Alicja: Hi again Dr. Cabral, I also would love to ask you about the medicianal mushrooms and candida overgrowth? Chaga, Reishi, Lion's Mane, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps etc. Can they be good for a person with gut imbalances and candida overgrowth? Or will they make my condition worse? Thank you so much for your answers. Lot's of gratitude and love towards you and your family.   Elizabeth: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all of your wonderful wisdom - I have been a faithful follower for many years. My daughter was diagnosed with a Chiari-1 malformation at age 2 (about 4 years ago) after a fall that required a CT scan due to persistent concussive symptoms. We had an MRI one year ago that showed interval development of a syrinx. Because of the higher probability that it may cause irreversible paresthesias and/or chronic pain, we decided to have decompression surgery in attempt to reduce the pressure in her spinal cord. She has had a follow-up MRI in the past 6 months which has not shown much improvement in the size of the syrinx. Wanting to avoid surgery again, I am curious as to whether you have any recommendations (not cures, diagnoses or treatments) to improve her symptoms. We are currently in PT due to her low muscle tone and poor coordination. I also give her a high quality multivitamin, Vitamin D3/K2, and omega daily. How would you treat this if it were your daughter? Thank you again!

Check out today's questions:  Jovita: Hey Dr. Cabral, I would like to know if you can help me with my stomach problem. I get bloated a lot and burp 24/7 to a point where I can't sleep at night. My doctor said I had a chronic constipation and bacteria in my gut and I also have heart burn. And I have been having this problem for 2 years and the medicine doesn't help. Is there anything you have that I can buy to help ? Jenna: Hey Dr. Cabral! I really appreciate this community you've built. It has helped me overcome health complications I didn't think I'd ever heal and restored my faith in the power of my own body and mind. My question is a little different. I am thinking of going back to school to get my masters in psychology because I love the field, but don't know what career I want to pursue with it. I was wondering if functional medicine companies like yours had a psychologist on staff working with the team and the clients. I would love to work with people who are determined to improve their health in all areas. I've thought maybe sports psychology would align the best with working on both the physical and mental aspects of health, but thought I'd ask if there are any opportunities for psychologists on functional medicine teams. Thanks for all your help! Gillian: Hey there Dr. Cabral! I want to thank you first for sharing all your wisdom with all of us. You have an amazing heart for people and touch more people than you will ever know. My question is about breast implants. I got silicone implants 15 years ago and after reading and learning about natural and functional medicine, I think I may have made a big health mistake. While I love the way it makes me look and feel, I do not want to sacrifice my health. I'm in my late 30's and healthy. Should I have them removed for health reasons and if so, are there any heathy alternatives? Thank you so very much! Nancy: Hello Dr Cabral, I am a 57 yr old female with history of Hashimotos Thyroiditis, sleep apnea and I had a heart attack 5 yrs ago with one stent placed. I am on Pravastatin 20mg and zedia 20mg. I have recently gained about 30lbs over covid period due to lack of exercise. I am vegan and gluten free. My cholesterol has crept back up to 190 and my glucose is at pre-diabetic level (over one point) I have gained most of my weight in my middle region and my cortisol is also elevated. My oxidative stress and inflammation markers are low. I sleep well and I meditate and do breath practices. I can't tolerate stronger statins due to side effects. I know exercise will help and am getting back on the wagon. What else can I do to reverse all of this. Thank you. Desire: Hi, is heavy metal intoxication related to Autism/ASD? Is there any treatment recommended if they are related to reducing the effects of heavy metals e.g diet, vitamin or natural therapies? Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I've been listening to to show for several years now and it has truly changed my life. Thank you. I've searched for this question but have not found it on the archives. Is broken 8-9 hrs of sleep still considered getting a full 8 hrs sleep? My 6 month old still wakes up once a night, so for instance I will get 6 hrs of straight sleep then another 2-3 hrs after I feed her and she goes back down   Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community's questions!  - - - Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/2248 - - - Get Your Question Answered: http://StephenCabral.com/askcabral   - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -  Dr. Cabral's Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Sleep & Hormones Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > View all Functional Medicine lab tests (View all Functional Medicine lab tests you can do right at home for you and your family)

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Hannah: I have a lot of confusion around protein consumption, especially when building muscle. Do you have a rule of thumb of how much protein is needed? When working with a nutritionist online, at one point she had me at 112 g, my body weight was around 140. This number was super hard to hit if I was not down in protein bars and shakes. Protein bars and protein shakes do not agree with my stomach at all. After finding you, I'm doing the detox and running some labs to work on my gut health. I would really like to get protein from natural sources. Can you help with how much protein do you think is needed?   Gary: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have severe gut issues and I am working with a functional Dr. We have determined I have leaky gut and bacterial imbalances in the gut. I also suffer from chronic constipation. We are trying to address these things currently. I also did a food sensitivity test for IGG and had very few problems there. However, I have massive bloating and cramping in the colon with EVERY meal no matter what food I eat. I tried the pulse test for IGE and found no increase in pulse, but I am getting horrible reactions every time I eat anything. Any advice? (I know stress is making things worse and I am very stressed currently, but this seems a bit extreme to be only stress) Thank you! Gary   Mallory: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am 27 years old & have been sick since I was a toddler. I had 4 sinus surgeries by the time I was 11 and was on an insane amount of medication & antibiotics as a child (so much so that it stained my adult teeth). Ever since I've had extreme gut issues, anxiety, & more recently I've developed POTS & other auto immune issues. A year ago I learned about candida, pathogens, parasites, mold, etc. I started on my own parasite cleanse which resulted in an instant crawling sensation all over my body. I had an intense herxheimer reaction & even tested positive for the flu. Since then, I have found a local functional doctor who has ran several functional tests & currently has me on a protocol similar to yours for my immune system and detox. He believes this is the root to the vast majority of my issues. The problem today is that it's been a year and I still see visible pathogens & film-like in every single one of my bowel movements. I still feel this crawling sensation, although not at all as intense as it was a year ago. My question is: is it possible that I can feel the pathogens moving as they are being pulled out of my body? Have you seen patients who took this long to detox? Any advice is much appreciated! It currently feels like I'm still so far from being well.   Zita: Hi, What about illnesses like eating compulsive disorders or Bulimia? Can they provoke adrenal insufficiency or hypothyroidism? Kind regards, Zita   Catherine: Hi Stephen. I've been lifting for 8 years. I was a swimmer growing up. In college I went from 140-105 lbs in three years by running and eating a paleo diet. I was about 6% body fat. I gained 20 lbs by eating 2700 of a paleo diet calories in 2017. I started intuitive eating. Mid 2020, I randomly started to gain weight. I tried cutting my calories and I started binge eating as a result. I gained 50# in 8 months. I was getting debilitating migraines with aura 2019-2020. I haven't had a period since 2018. I started cutting with a coach in March of 2021. We reversed to 2300 calories and went down from there. I lost 12 lbs and plateaued in July. We tried going lower. I went down to 1200 calories (still paleo) and still did not lose weight. I believe my hormones are messed up and the binge eating is coming back. My digestion sucks and I have to take linzess. I don't know what to do at this point. I am sitting at 5'5” 156-158 lbs, 25/26% body fat based on Dexa. I still have no period. My mood and my energy are all over the place. I take progesterone but it doesn't do anything. Any tips on where to go from here? I want to get back to 140#.   Cassandra: Hi Dr. Cabral, Since probably November, I've started noticing tiny bumps on my eyelid. They have only appeared on the top lid of my right eye. It's not like a stye that I've seen people get on the main surface of the eyelid; they show up below the lash line, like where the two lids meet when you blink. They're the same color as the rest of my skin and can be scraped away with my fingernail. They don't hurt, but I'm just wondering what would cause this and if it's a sign of something I should be concerned about. Thank you.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:  Christina: Hi Dr. Cabral. What do you think about eating for your blood type? I've been reading the book “Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type” and find it particularly interesting. Any comments or thoughts on this?   Ryan: Hello, I have been wondering if you know anything about the approximate ratio of black pepper to turmeric is needed to get the benefits of the bioperine? I don't want to get too much into the micro here but also would like to know practically if a tiny grind from the shaker is enough or if larger amounts are needed? Thanks in advance.   Cindy: Dr Cabral, I listened to Episode 760 on killing viruses. It talks about the need to ramp up your immune system, however, I have an autoimmune thyroid,(Hashimotos) and was told to avoid things that ramp up my immune system, because the immune system has already gone rogue, and it could cause the body to attack itself even more. For instance, I read to avoid echinacea and Holy Basil. Can you clear this up because I certainly would like to support immune system without causing issues with my autoimmunity. I listen all the time, so thanks for your help on this issue. Cindy   Liz: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for putting so much time and effort into your podcasts; it's clear that you have a drive and a need to help people help themselves! I've learned a lot over the past couple of years. My question is, what do you think of fucoxanthin supplements to aid in fat loss? I haven't been able to find a lot of information on it, but what I have seen seems promising. It's hard to find though, and I question the quality of the supplements I have been able to find. Is fucoxanthin legit? And if so how do I find a source I can trust? Thank you!   Bob: Hi Dr. Cabral. Love the podcast and your unbias approach to everything you cover. I know you have a lot of content on Intermittent Fasting so I apologize if my question has already been addressed, but I'm wondering what breaks a fast when doing Intermittent Fasting? I'll start my morning w/ some organic non-caffeinated herbal tea (typically some Roasted Dandelion Root or Rose Hips & Hibiscus by Traditional Medicinals, or Lemon Ginger plus Probiotics by Bigelow). Would that break my fast? Also curious about supplements. Would taking a supplement pill first thing in the morning or right before bed break a fast?   Crystal: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am 25 and have struggled with my weight my entire life. When I was in high school, I got very slim but then gained over 100 pounds between ages 19-20. I was then diagnosed at 20 with PCOS which has resulted in chronic dry eye syndrome and hypothyroidism. I went vegan shortly after I was diagnosed for ethical and health reasons. I was able to lose the majority of the weight, but in the past year have put a lot back on. Even with listening to your previous podcasts on PCOS, doing slow weighted workouts and steady cardio with balanced, high-protein meals, the weight does not want to shed. I'm at a loss for what to do and was wondering if you could recommend a certain diet/protocol? I want to mention that because I'm vegan and aiming to eat higher protein meals, I often use faux meats to meet my macro goals. I sway towards cleaner products, but many have PUFAs, which I know you say causes inflammation. Could this be a reason I'm not losing weight? Do I have to give these up to reach my goals? What are some better protein sources for vegans besides beans, tofu, and tempeh? Thank you so much! I so value your work and expertise, and am so grateful for your podcast and deep care for peoples' health!

My husband is 48 years old and was born with congenital heart disease. 12 years ago he had a heart transplant. For the most part he is very very healthy from what his transplant team tells him. He recently also did the big five, we are waiting for the results to get back, but my question is because he is taking so many drugs, especially his immunosuppressants, heart rejection medicine, is he still able to take all of the supplements his IHP level two practitioner will recommend? I'm wondering what your thoughts are on someone like him. Can he reverse everything just like someone who has not had a heart transplant? Should he consult his transplant team before taking anything? Just curious what your thoughts are on someone like him Who is anatomy is not the norm. Thank you so so much for all you do!   Kelly: Do you have expertise in working with epilepsy?

And if so, why would that be? A part from the potential malabsorption of iodine and selenium of course.   Angie: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your guidance through my families healing journey. I have a question regarding my 11 year old daughter. She has an enlarged tonsil on the left side of her throat (my left when I look in her throat). Our general practitioner doctor noticed it after a bout of antibiotics due to strep when she was a kindergartner, so we went to see a specialist and he said to just “watch it.” She now sees a naturopathic doctor and tested positive for HPylori and SIBO, which she has done treatment for and eradicated. She currently takes your DNS, DFVB, Vitamin D and Omega 3. Her tonsil is still the same size it was when she was 5 and nothing seems to get it to settle down. Do you have any suggestions?   Soussi: Thks a lot i got ur page from a friend of mine .i get hemophilia A One year now.i m 46 years old and this hemophilia not heriditaire i get some scanners but no reasons .i take no médecine now i have only médecine in case of hémorragy.the facteur 8 Is on déficit it was 0 the first tme but now 5.

Looking at thyroid for example, I know thyroid is reduced in higher levels of cortisol but in someone that is not producing enough cortisol because the adrenals are exhausted, this doesn't apply right? I guess my question is "can someone be on the fight or flight, if they are on the later stages of adrenal fatigue?". I would assume that since little cortisol is being produced, the body is not stressed and therefore not in the fight or flight?   Stefanie: Hi, before my question I wanted to thank you for and your team for all that do everyday. Now to my question, I am 34 yrs old and had my gallbladder removed a few years ago and from time to time I feel similar pain but to a lower level on my right side right under my ribcage. I was told that sometimes I can have stone residue on that duct between my liver and my now removed gallbladder. I have gotten sonogram, mri and nothing comes up. My cbc showed for sometime to have high cholesterol but I managed to bring that down. Currently I do macros with 50 g of fat a day and definitely seen a change in my overall health but I still have this pain. I do strength training 4 times a week and cardio twice a week, 8k steps a day. I also drink a gallon of water a day. I take omega 3, vitamin d, zinc, magnesium, and a multivitamin. How much fat should be consuming and what kind of fats ? I normally eat organic chicken breast, organic ground turkey breast, top round beef (which has lower fat), almonds, evoo cold pressed, avocado, oats, powder peanut butter, cage free eggs, some coffee cream and that's mainly what my fat sources are overall. I rarely eat processed foods, thank you.   Yasmin: Would you do a podcast on psoriasis please. How can we cure it? Without having to omit absolutely everything from our diet (which is what I see people do). Is it curable? Have you treated patients with skin problems like this.   Anonymous: Hi dr Cabral! I am a wine sales rep and so I have to drink for my job. I love wine but I get hungover off of one glass. Are there ways to support the body during drinking? I only drink a few glasses a week max but I want to make sure I'm staying healthy. Also any tips for preventing the hangover? Thanks!   Alison: RE: Hypothryroidism and Hashimotos Is it possible to reverse these two? I see a Dr. at Vanderbilt Univ. Medical Ctr. and he tells me it is not even a possibility.   Tina: Thank you for everything you do. I recently did the big five and I am working with a level two practitioner and I am so excited about my journey to wellness. I have a reverse osmosis under the sink water system. I read somewhere that the holding tank under my sink can cause the water to get moldy. So I went ahead and purchased a test kit that I took at home and sent off to the lab and the results came back telling me the below …. I'm not quite sure what to make of this. Is this water harmful to drink? From what I understand all water, from an RO system and even a Berkey will have some type of bacteria in it. The only pure water is distilled. Thank you!!! Total HPC Bacteria 580000 CFU/100ml SLR. Health Effects: Heterotrophic (carbon-consuming) bacteria include a wide range of relatively harmless microorganisms that are commonly present in natural water sources. While HPC is indeed an indicator of overall bacterial presence in your water, it is not a good indicator of health risk since many of these bacteria are not pathogenic, or likely to affect your health. On the other hand, coliform and e.coli bacteria, are well known indicators of pathogenic health risk. Common Sources: Heterotrophs are microorganisms that require organic carbon to grow and reproduce.
